Chasing Snow…

_DSC0852 640

I’m off to Big South Fork with Indy (the German Shepherd) chasing snow! This will be Indy’s first camping trip, he’s 5 months old. So we’ll be car camping to accommodate the additional gear I’m taking along for him.

Hopefully lots of winter wonderland photos to follow!

Update:

Big South Fork turned out to be a no-go for snow. And Indy was bored with sitting in the tent waiting out the rain. So we packed up and headed back Friday.

Saturday, however, turned out great for snow. Check out the Chestnut Branch Trail post.
